From a student visa ( B ) to A visa

Post by Seven7 » Thu Oct 06, 2016 9:40 pm

Hello everyone,

I am here in Finland for studying. I have been here since January 2016, and at the moment I have a B VISA. However, I started to work on March and back then I had a fixed contract, but now I got a permanent contract AND of course I am still studying... So the question is... Am I eligible for a A VISA? A friend of mine, told me that at this moment, I can get A VISA only for one year, then after that I will get for 4 years.... I was trying to find the right answer on Migri, but I couldnt find the answers for this type of question.


Please , let me know if I am eligible for a A VISA?

Thank you, Star

Your friend is correct.
Every f*cking application is unique.You can't measure the result of your application based on random anecdotes online. Stop being a moron!

Visa is for visiting, up to three months, residence permit is for residing. It helps with search if you got the right terms.

That being said: "The first permit is usually granted for a year, unless the residence permit is specifically applied for a shorter period." http://www.migri.fi/our_services/faq/re ... rmit_types

Visa is for visiting, Residence Permit for residing.
